Be a Partner Site

Why be a Mental Health Community Partner Site?

By being a Partner Site, an organization utilizes a next generation of behavioral health solution for youth and adults managing serious behavioral health conditions. 

A Partner Site will:

  • Leverage community partnerships
  • Bring together families and peers and encourage shared values
  • Build connections and support recovery
  • Promote a whole-health model
  • Provide free certification and recertification for professionals and paraprofessionals
